There will be a new face to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo executive committee come 2019 rodeo season. Patricia “Pat” Mann Phillips, a local energy consultant in Houston, was elected into the Executive Committee of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo earlier this year on June 7th. Other than being the only new elected member of the committee for the 2019 rodeo season, Patty is the first woman ever to be elected to the committee.
This was not the first achievement for Patty. In 2001 Patty became a life member and volunteer of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Within these past 17 years, she was the initial chair of the Tours Committee in 2008, and was then elected Vice President for 2016-2018, making her the seventh female VP in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s history.
